Modis level 3 daily cloud effective radius data
I'm trying to use modis level 3 daily gridded data for Aerosol cloud interaction studies.
I want to use the "cloud-effective radius" parameter for single-level clouds for 3.7-micron wavelength. I found two parameters in the file, Cloud_Effective_Radius_1L_Liquid_Mean and Cloud_Effective_Radius_37_Liquid_Mean.
Cloud_Effective_Radius_1L_Liquid_Mean: I guess, It is the single-layer liquid cloud effective particle radius retrieved from Band 7 ( 2.1-micron wavelength ). Am I correct?
Cloud_Effective_Radius_37_Liquid_Mean: I assume this parameter is retrieved from Band 20 (3.7-micron wavelength) but include both single and multi-layer clouds. So how can I categorize single-layer clouds from this parameter?
Can anyone provide any suggestions
Any help is highly appreciated.
